If the Heat vs Timberwolves game is in your market, you can watch a live stream via FuboTV or Hulu with Live TV. If it’s out of your market, you can watch a live stream via Amazon Prime or NBA.com. More details can be found below.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (2-0) look to stay perfect at home when they host the Miami Heat (2-0) at the Target Center in Minneapolis Sunday.
The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET. Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Heat vs Timberwolves on your computer, phone or streaming device, with the options being dependent on whether or not the game is in your market:
If the Game is in Your Market
The game will be televised locally on either Fox Sports Sun (Heat market) or Fox Sports North (Timberwolves market). If you don’t have cable, you can watch either of those channels live online via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
For those who live in local markets, Fox Sports Sun and Fox Sports North are among the 95-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which is largely tailored towards sports.
You can start a free seven-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Heat vs Timberwolves on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch the game live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which will allow you to watch any game on-demand within three days of its conclusion, even if you don’t record it.
For those who live in local markets, Fox Sports Sun and Fox Sports North are part of the 60-plus live TV channels included with Hulu With Live TV, which also comes with Hulu’s huge on-demand streaming TV and movie library.
You can sign up for Hulu with Live TV right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Heat vs Timberwolves on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch the game live, Hulu With Live TV comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.
If The Game is Out of Your Market
This is ultimately the same as regular NBA League Pass (more info on that below), but this is the preferred option because you can watch games on Amazon’s digital platforms rather than NBA’s. The latter has had user experience and buffering issues in the past.
Whether you already have Amazon Prime or you start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch every out-of-market, non-nationally televised NBA game via Amazon Prime’s NBA League Pass channel. A free trial is available until October 29, meaning you can watch this game at no cost.
You can sign up for both Amazon Prime and the NBA League Pass channel right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Heat vs Timberwolves and all out-of-market games on your computer via the Amazon website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the Amazon Video app.
Again, this is mostly the same as the Amazon Prime option above, with the big different being you’ll watch through NBA’s digital platforms rather than Amazon’s. There are also a few different pricing options when signing up for League Pass through NBA.com (one-team pass, all-team pass or all-team, commercial-free pass), but they also have a free trial through October 29.
You can sign up right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Heat vs Timberwolves and all out-of-market games on your computer via the NBA website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other compatible device via the NBA app.
Heat vs Timberwolves Preview
The Timberwolves have gotten off to a hot start, averaging 124 points a game, which is second in the NBA so far this season. They’re coming off a 121-99 win against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, and they have looked good in both games so far this season.
Center Karl-Anthony Towns leads the team in scoring with 36.5 points a game, and Andrew Wiggins is second on the team with 18.5 ppg. On defense, the Timberwolves are giving up 112.5 points a game, and head coach Ryan Saunders sees their defense as the key to his team’s success thus far:
“We feel confident that even when we’re missing shots, we were generating good looks and we just needed some to fall, but really our defense fueled our offense,” Saunders said of the team’s win against the Hornets.
The Heat, off to an equally hot start, will in for a tough test Sunday, especially considering they’ll be without Jimmy Butler, who will miss his second and final game to be with his girlfriend, who just gave birth to their child. Miami is in the midst of a two-game road trip, having visited the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday, where they won 131-126.
The Heat have had a well-balanced attack so far through two games. They have six players scoring in double figures, led by Goran Dragic, who is averaging 22 ppg, and Kendrick Nunn, who’s chipping in 21 points a game. On top of the loss of Butler, the Heat could be without forward Derrick Jones Jr., who is doubtful against Minnesota after suffering from a groin strain.
One of these teams will see their hot start tempered a bit Sunday night. The Timberwolves were 2-0 against the Heat last year, and look to continue that success.
